Experience the romance of Saigon – a city once known as the pearl of the Far East – as you explore its winding canals and waterways on a luxury speedboat tour.
The speedboat will bring you to an old area of Saigon, where you can see a mixture of architectural styles, urban sceneries combined with historical objects. You will pass Nha Rong Wharf (The Dragon house) built in 1863 by French colonialists, where now Ho Chi Minh Museum is located. You will see Saigon Port and observe the life of the inhabitants of Saigon by night.
You will also visit Mieu Noi floating temple, built in 18 century in the middle of Vam Thuat River, which is considered to be one of the most unique architectural works in Vietnam.
